About this location

The Ionian Islands region

There are many excellent beaches on the island of Lefkas, the water is clear and clean - and the sea temperatures are perfect for swimming for many months of the year.

The closest beaches are less than five minutes' drive away - and to the north, near Lefkas town, Windmill beach is world famous for kite-surfing. To the south, at Vassiliki, the beach is one of the best in Europe for windsurfing and catamaran sailing. Full snorkelling equipment can be rented at the villa, and a guided snorkelling trips can be provided on request.


Nearby Nidri (3km/5mins by car) is an attractive coastal town and resort with shops, bars, banks and tavernas. At the excellent beach, you can enjoy water-skiing, parascending and other water-sports- and a delightful coastal promenade has a choice of cafes and restaurants from where you can watch the ocean-going activities of yachts, small island ferries and pleasure craft.
